problems, who have bad records, shouldn't be getting guns. this is the time to see if the background checks work. mark and emily is here. thank you. i want to talk to mark. and let me just tell you what i want to do here tonight. i want to face facts. i'm a political guy. not especially spent my life finding gun safety although i did write my letter to congress. johnny carson said to do it and he was nonpolitical. i said, damn it, i'm going to write a letter. i think the line of defense and i hope you can focus on it right now is background checks. how can anybody oppose something that 92% of the american people want? in other words, any thoughtful person who isn't derangedly pro gun says, yeah, we ought to make sure the crazy people, whatever we want to call them, deranged, whatever, dangerous people, husbands who beat up wives and threaten them, people like that should not have guns. let's talk about that, if you can, mark. you're the expert. >> you're right. nobody in the public does oppose background checks.
